Relic Knights NMM

So I finally tried some NMM on a fun mini from Relic Knights, the Iron Chef (part of the Star Nebular Corsair faction).  Perhaps a mini with a thin sword and more curved armor would have been a better choice, but it was time to try it.  Also, this guy has a pretty limited palette, mainly grays and browns but there is the odd splash of color here and there.  I have not worked with black or white before, so there were many challenges here.

My blending is not quite up to the job, but I think it's close.  The pictures are little "posterized" - you can see the transitions pretty clearly.  As everyone says, the mini is a little better in real life.  I kept the white jacket a little grey, so that there was some room for the whites on the steel to pop.

He was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun.  On the whole, I am pretty pleased with the result.

I'm pleased with the shading on the fry pan and the leather knife scabbard on his back.

I'll call him Marmod Ramsay.  His attacks are:

Back to Cerci Speed Circuit next ... or maybe some scenery for the game.
